Tokyo Disney Resort Extends Reduced Hours & Alcohol Suspension Through September 30 Amid State of Emergency Extension

In light of the State of Emergency being extended around Japan yet again, the Oriental Land Company has announced that the reduced park hours implemented on May 17 will be extended once again through September 30.


Although COVID-19 cases are falling in and around Tokyo, daily case numbers and the percent of hospital beds occupied has still not fallen enough in the eyes of the government to lift the fourth State of Emergency.

There may yet be a light at the end of the tunnel, however. Top business lobbies are increasingly pressuring the government to adopt measures to reopen Japan domestically and internationally as vaccination rates improve, including the exemption of fully vaccinated travellers from Japan’s highly strict quarantine procedures. Approximately 50% of Japan’s 126 million people are fully vaccinated as of today, according to Reuters. Additionally, the Japanese government announced plans this week to begin easing restrictions in November on businesses, provided they require proof of vaccination or of a recent negative test. Tokyo Disney Resort would almost certainly fall under these easements.

Through September 30, both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will operate from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Additionally, ticket sales have been modified to keep park capacity at or around 5,000 guests.

Alcohol sales will continue to be suspended as well.
